A unique way of cooking duck stew using nipa wine or “tuba”. This native wine comes from coconut sap collected by snipping the stem called the florescence and attaching a bamboo pole. The product derived from the sap is either wine or vinegar. Cooking meat using coconut wine has a distinct flavor compared to using ordinary cooking wine.
This lumpia recipe is not wrapped with lumpia wrapper that is why it is called lumpiang hubad. This lumpia is also unique because it contains mostly fried tokwa or tofu strips. If lumpiang hubad seems not too satisfying, you can also wrap it with lumpia wrapper and serve with lumpia sauce. You can use any kind of lumpiang sariwa sauce with this dish.

This rice based dish is an American version of the famous Spanish paella. Jambalaya is a Louisiana Creole dish of Spanish and French influence. It is usually a combination of meat, vegetables, seafood and rice. The jambalaya recipe I have here uses cured meat such as salami and Chinese sausage and I’m sure it is very easy to cook, just like cooking fried rice. I don’t if this dish is related in anyway to the song “Jambalaya (On The Bayou)”, maybe it’s up to you to find out. 😉 “So….goodbye Joe, gotta go me oh my oh!”
Gambas or sauteed shrimps in garlic chili oil is a very tasty appetizer and a viand too. You can buy garlic chili oil in big supermarkets but you can also make your own. It is very simple and easy to make it. Just peel about 1/2 cup of garlic and combine with 1/8 cup red chili peppers and 1/2 cup vegetable oil. Put it in a blender until the garlic and chilies are finely chopped. Then put in heated frying pan and fry the chili garlic until it turns to brown.
